Genesis 46:5

Ἀνέστη δὲ Ἰακὼβ ἀπὸ τοῦ φρέατος τοῦ ὅρκου, καὶ ἀνέλαβον οἱ υἱοὶ Ἰσραὴλ Ἰακὼβ τὸν πατέρα αὐτῶν καὶ τὴν ἀποσκευὴν καὶ τὰς γυναῖκας αὐτῶν ἐπὶ τὰς ἁμάξας, ἃς ἀπέστειλεν Φαραὼ ἆραι αὐτόν.

Then Iakob rose up from the well of the oath, and the sons of Israel took up Iakob their father and the little ones and their wives on the wagons, which Pharao sent to carry him.

ויקם יעקב מבאר שׁבע וישׂאו בני־ישׂראל את־יעקב אביהם ואת־טפם ואת־נשׁיהם בעגלות אשׁר־שׁלח פרעה לשׂאת אתו׃
